Samsung isn’t always the first company that comes to mind when thinking of manufacturers who deliver the most timely updates to the latest versions of Android, but they seem to have been inspired by the latest major release of Android 5.0 Lollipop. The upgrade is now rolling out to Samsung Galaxy S5 users… in Poland.
Small markets like Poland tend to get the upgrade ahead of everyone else as it’s a good way to test the distribution and fallout of the upgrade process without potentially putting millions of units at risk. Should everything go well in that leg of the world then you can rest assured Samsung will polish it up for the rest of us in due time.
As with any software update, you’re bound to wait a tad longer depending on region and carrier. We reckon unlocked versions of the handset will get it first, with folks in Europe and South Korea getting next at bat. North America is typically on the long end of the update track.
A recent video of leaked firmware for the device embedded above shows you exactly what to expect once it finally makes its way to your handset. TouchWiz has as strong a presence as you’d expect, though Samsung did tweak the aesthetics enough to make it feel a bit different from what we’re used to.
If you live in Poland — congrats, and have fun! For everyone else, well, at least this shows Samsung isn’t dragging their feet and that they’re making good pace and progress on getting the upgrade out to everyone.
